Van Horn, Gavin, “Into the Wildness”, Wildness: Relations of People and Place, (University of Chicago Press, 2017).

A practice of the wild implies that humans have a role to play in cultivating wildness–in themselves, in their communities, and in the landscapes which these communities are a part. Wildness, in this sense, is an ongoing relationship, one in which human cultures–through active participation and humble restraint–become attuned to the community of life and constructive well-being of the places in which they live, work, and play (4).
